Weekend Wanderings: Red Rocks Around Anglesea
A few weeks ago I was given another opportunity to go to Red Rocks near Anglesea. Chris from sv-takeiteasy took me to some great places to see the cliffs and red rocks. She knows the area quite well, which was great as I know I would never have been able to find it on my own. The rocks really are red and they look great against the ocean with the white spray from the waves.
Apparently they have a lot of iron ore in them to have that colour. Geology isn’t my thing, but I believe it. It is almost like they have the sunset trapped inside.
We were there in the afternoon in the photo above, but we decided that it might be good to see it in the morning, so the next time we went we headed early in the morning.
We had hoped that the sun would be on the cliffs, but we think we probably need to get there even earlier, sunrise maybe, you can be sure we will get there that early one day.
I put on a filter for the morning session to get more movement in the water. I like the effect. I do have a new Formatt Hitech ND filter that I will have to play around with at some stage. I am hoping it will really give me good effects like this, but easier.
The views on top of one cliff to another were quite amazing. I like the wide angle view with the background, it is definitely something I want to explore a lot more.
The top of the cliffs are very windy and with so much salt spray it is hard for things to grow. When they do grow they can do so in very weird ways and shapes. I liked seeing them and photographing them. The only thing that I was disappointed about was that I didn’t have my really wide angle with me. I will make sure I have it with me next time.
I am going to put the above images and more into a gallery for you. Don’t forget you can click on the images and see them individually. Open house in Melbourne today so I am hoping to see inside some buildings that you can’t see otherwise. Should be fun. I hope you have some great plans for the weekend.
